Default Brandon Harris where are you?

Most know I was a Harris fan and had him on my mock in second round. Loved Reed selection but was disappointed my guy was bypassed. Then my hope was resurrected with the trade back into 2nd round for him. I'm thinking, "Well Wade must see what I do. The kid can be an NFL cover corner." The guy starts his own rookie diary but posted last in early Sept and then nothing. See link
http://www.houstontexans.com/news/ar...5-eac950b89e08

Kubiak said we'd see a lot more of him against Saints but he did not get into game. In fact the only stat I can find was he played against Miami but it was not much. I remember an announcer saying his name in a positive manner but nothing else.

None seems to know anything & it is almost as if he got himself into a coach's doghouse, but I can't confirm anything & nothing about an injury.

Brandon Harris where are you?

Default Re: Brandon Harris where are you?

The way KJ has played thus far i would love to see Brandon get some snaps. Other than Aaron Williams he was the corner I liked the most in the second, and I was very happy we made the move to get him. The only knock i remember having on him is his height and Kareem is more than a few inches short of making an impact. Anybody have any ideas why he isn't playing, or did I overvalue his ability?

I had Williams as a FS and Harris was listed at 5'11" in college but measured 5'9" at combine. That was disappointing.

Eh, if he measures 5'9, but plays like he's 5'11, then it's all good. Still, gotta see if he plays well or not. The Steelers game would be a good one to work him in as they seem like a weak passing threat.

They are definitely not a weak passing threat. You have a guy like Big Ben back there that can extend the play and have a playmaker in Mike Wallace that just seems to have a knack of getting past the coverage. Not to mention Hines Ward isnt no scrub.

Default Where is Brandon Harris

Just wondering since we traded up for him.

It seemed everyone in April were penciling him in as the #2 CB.

He's on the team. He tweeted a while back that he was practicing as if he was going to start because he wants to be ready when called.

Jason Allen is playing well and Jackson is having the season he was supposed to have as a rookie so I'm sure he's getting bumped down a bit.

All of the aforementioned reasons, as well as the coaching staff realizing that sticking rookies in the secondary can really screw you over.

Exactly, I don't think they want to throw him out there. Besides, we don't really need him right now. I would look for him next year though. In case Jason Allen or one of our other corners wants to jump ship and test the market.

Biggest issue for him is he is pretty much locked into nickle/slot CB. McCain has that shit on lock.

He's been inactive the past couple of weeks, I think he is basically just a fill in if somebody who plays primarily Special Teams like McMannis gets hurt. The last time he was active was when McMannis got hurt, don't think we'll see him at CB this year barring any major injuries in the Secondary. What we're doing now is working, no need to force the issue.

Harris is basically being redshirted this year so that he's ready for next year. It's what Kubiak should have done with KJ last year but didn't have a choice since we didn't get anyone in FA last year.

I think Allen & KJ are playing well enough to not need Harris. I still like the Harris pick, though, as a precautionary if the Allen/KJ combo didn't work out.
